DS Squared Architects are a firm of RIBA Chartered Architects, qualified and accredited to provide a wide range of technical architectural services to customers from domestic and commercial sectors to healthcare and hospitality. We have the full spectrum of skills to develop every aspect of building renovation, from the external aesthetics of the building to the structural dynamics that support its safety and integrity, to the interior design of the building. Quite simply, by working with a RIBA Chartered Practice, you have everything you need in one place to create a beautiful, strong, functional and compliant building that is durable enough to stand the test of time.

Architecture is our passion.

In each project we strive to combine functionality, beauty and harmony, making the best use of materials, space, and light to create a unique structure around the needs, tastes and lifestyle of our individual clients. A building is more than a construction of wood, brick, and glass – it is a story, your story! It is our job to help you write that story using the best methods, strategies, and approaches, in a way that does justice to your project outcomes, design preferences and budget.


Each project, from straightforward house extensions to complete residential developments, are guided by several core principles.

Our projects are:

  • Contemporary and innovative
  • Unique and bespoke
  • Site-specific
  • Client focused
  • Practical and stunning
  • Sustainable
  • Beneficial to the community


From our studios in North London (Edgware) and London (Fulham), our team work on a wide range of architectural projects throughout Greater London and across the UK. These include new build homes designed for individual homeowners and residential developers, basement conversions, apartments/flats, restaurants, shops, industrial units, offices, and healthcare buildings.

We bring expert knowledge of planning legislation and local authority guidelines to every project, navigating the planning process and facilitating successful planning applications and saving our customers time, frustration, and money. We also have a deep knowledge of building conservation and heritage design, enabling us to work sensitively on listed and historic buildings, and to design striking but sympathetic building solutions for property owners in conservation and restricted areas.


Architecture is as individual as each client. At DS Squared Architects, we take a person-centred approach to each project, finding out about each customer’s budget, expectations, living and working requirements, and what they want from their project, and creating a unique design that meets and exceeds their expectations.
